Between Anita's sex life with several lovers, her self-defense battles with supernatural creatures - in this case Belle Morte and Musette -, her fight to save the lives of were creatures and "good" vampires, I don't know where Anita finds the time to do her job of raising the dead. Oh, then there's her on-call job with the police when a crime appears to be supernaturally committed. In this book, there is indeed some horrendous crimes that seem to be the work of a serial killer. All of the victims have been torn apart and some crucified. Is it the work of one of the werewolves? Or of something different? Read and find out.

As for her love life which is, at times, separate from her sex life, Anita is on the outs with her werewolf lover which causes several problems for Anita. Then she has 2 or 3 - I lost count - men who she "feeds" from sexually to keep the ardeur from overtaking her. As for her lovers, they include Jean-Claude, Nathaniel and Micah. They also "feed" the ardeur but have more of a "love" relationship with Anita.

Asher, Jean-Claudes ex-lover centuries ago, appears more in this book and I got to know him better. I found him to be an interesting character and am glad Ms Blake has included more of him in this book. It appears Asher become another one of her lovers by the end of the book.

Belle Morte and her vampire spokeswoman, Musette, both come along to confront Anita in that underhanded, manipulative way that vampires have. There's one point where it gets all intricately metaphysical. I don't think I'm giving part of the plot away by stating that Anita gains the upper hand over these two vicious beings. After all, there are other books that appear after this one featuring Anita Blake. But I usually find the parts where Anita suddenly winning against these malevolent creatures in all the books pretty unbelievable. Especially as it's explained in some kind of made-up metaphysical context that doesn't make much sense to me.

I liked Anita Blake in the earlier books. But lately, in these later books, I'm getting annoyed by Anita. The more power she gains, the more annoying she's becoming. Yet I continue to read Ms Hamilton's books since I like the other characters and look forward to seeing how they're doing with each subsequent book. I find it strange that the only heroic female in these books is Anita. Maybe because Anita spends lots of time having sex with them though this book has less sex than Danse Macabre. I prefer the Feehan books. Her stories feature a lot of love along with the lust. The Carpathanian men, though dominating, are very loving men. Their lifemates know how to tame them though and there are quite a few of these women who are heroic. Unlike Anita, they've retained their femininity and their own power. They don't spend all their time being angry at the slightest perceived offense and they're not power seeking, since first they seek the continuation of their race. Though, I must say, the one part of Anita that's still alive is her defense of the weak. That's the best time for her to hold on to her anger and fight for justice.

I am lukewarm on this book. I am a fan of the Anita Blake series but I am not liking the turn the series seems to be taking. It's not really about the gratuitous (and mostly pointless) sex scenes either. It's mostly that the main character is becoming unbelievably powerful, and pretty much always right. Plus Anita's self-righteous attitude. She isn't all that much fun to read anymore. It's a shame. However, I love the world that Hamilton has created. People who love Asher (like me) won't want to miss him in this book. I still love so many of the characters in this series. Thanks for PBS for giving me the opportunity to keep up on them without actually having to buy the books! LOL I hope the next person to read this book enjoys it more than I did. It's not really bad, it's just not what I was looking for.

LOVED THIS BOOK!!! But I am a HUGE Anita Blake fan. I love most of the characters and can't wait to see where they go. Jason and Nathanial are two of my favorites. (next to Jean Claude and Asher of course) I just like Jasons off the wall humor, and the sweetness of Nathanial. This along with all the others are just really great reads.

If you like your sex scenes subtle don't pick up this series! I on the other hand blushed and giggled my way happily through this book. I picked this book up mid series at a gas station near Grand Coulee Dam and fell in love. Very descriptive characters with realistic personalities. Anita (the main character) says the things in situations that you wish you had the gumption to say. Highly reccomended!

Entertaining fast read. There was more sex than there was in her earlier books. A lot of people say that they think that there is too much sex, but there seemed to be more protesting about the sex before it even happened and explaining why they "had" to have sex. I don't think that Anita can continue to be a sex kitten (no pun intended) and spend twenty pages deciding if she is comfortable with doing it. The rest of the story was still murder and mayhem like all the others.

I love this series. This particular paranormal, vamp, werefolk thing works for me in the stories that L.K.H. tells. Sexy guys, strong yet insecure woman, saucy, erotic by-play - LOVE IT! The drama of a Master Vamp who wants to get to the heroines guys through her keeps you on the edge, making it hard to put the book down. It is also tantalizing to watch the drama of how her relationships with "her" guys intensifies. Each book pulls you in to see which one of the guys if any will really and truly, get the girl. On the other hand, hey, if it at broke - don't fix it.

#11 Anita Blake hunter novel

Anita begins this fantastic dark adventure by raising the dead and ends it by tackling a murderous monster. In between, she wades (literally) into a bloody investigation of a preternatural serial killer and (metaphysically and physically) into dangerous vampire politics. ber-vampiress Belle Morte has sent her dreaded surrogate, Musette, to demand that Anita's paramour, Jean-Claude, Master Vampire of the City, return the vampire Asher to her-a fate worse than a stake through the heart. In order to save Asher, Anita must be both sexually and psychically creative. Anita and the vampires also need head werewolf Richard to help defeat Belle Morte's designs. But can Richard, who recently dumped Anita because she was more "monster" than human, be relied on? Meanwhile, cop Dolph Storr, who's gone violently anti-preternatural, won't let Anita (now a federal marshal) help stop a series of gruesome murders.

The book type on this is registering as "other." It is an unabridged audio MP3-CD. I enjoyed Cynthia Holloway's reading, and the continuation of Anita Blakes adventures. It focuses a bit too much on sex for my tastes, but that is integral to the inter-relationships between the characters.

What can I say? I love this series. Sure it gets a little crazy with sex, but I am so glad that there's an author who doesn't us a namby-pamby priss as her leading lady!

Without overly rehashing was some of the other reviewers have said and without trying to give away the plot, I must point out that these books shouldn't be read out of order. Even with the author doing a good job of trying to catch the average reader up on events, the series is just better and easier to understand read in order.

I myself totally "get" the humor in them and yet to have been bother or offended by the sex scenes (not any real girl-on-girl so it's all good since I don't care for those kind of erotic stories). I've read FAR worse that has just bordered on yucky and ridiculous.

I do sometimes get miffed by Anita's solo kick-ass attitude, but this series is about her and is written in first person. So we tend to know how she thinks of herself and not necessarily what others think of her. If the author really wanted us to know about everyone else's details she would have written in in third person omniscient. Although, seeing her get more powerful should be expected. If she got weaker, she'd be dead and the series would be over.

It's also not like she doesn't have a disability (the ardeur). There are a lot of other problems that would be far less embarrassing (for Anita) than needing to rub one off a couple times a day or go crazy. At least she's not a nympho having to grab some ugly stranger off the street to do her wicked deeds.

I did get a laugh that the ACLU has been mentioned in this book after my review for the previous one. But I still don't get why lycanthropes continue to be treated as poorly as they are by the authorities. It's really like discriminating against someone who has HIV or another blood-borne pathogen. Plus, it's really odd that the non-humans haven't take a more important role in police work and other federal jobs. Most of the ones in the book are strippers or bouncers or working in Jean-Claude's businesses. You would think that having shapeshifter help track down the bad guys would be a good thing. After all, they can track in wolf form and then write up their reports afterwards. :D

Richard, once again, continues to be an jerk. What is it with this guy? He's always implying that Anita is a slut, yet several books ago he was happily trying to find a replacement Lupa by auditioning them in the sack.

Which brings me to the next issue, that the classic double-standards continue to be in play in the story. Why is it okay for guys to be players but when a woman does it they're sluts? It's really sad that society (well-portrayed in the story) continues to give independent women grief.

On a refreshing note, I was glad to see Sigmund make a small appearance. :)

Anytime I get to spend time with Jean Claude, I'm excited. But this book was thoroughly disappointing. We meet Musette and Belle Morte (whose line Jean Claude is descended from) - 2 very old enemies of Jean Claude. We learn more about the ardeur and where it started. Belle Morte is one scary vamp, but I thought LKH could have done better with this plot. Most of the book focused on Anita dealing with the ardeur and her numerous lovers, her threesomes and foursomes. Just a bit too raunchy for my taste.

Belle Morte sends a party to visit, 3 months early. Chaos ensues. All I have to say is that LKH really knows how to write, because I have a lot of hatred for Richard.

When a sinister stranger tries to hire the magically potent Anita Blake to raise the dead, she finds herself embroiled in the search for a vicious, supernatural serial killer, and also in the clandestine international politics of the vampires. And as she becomes more deeply enmeshed in cruel plots and counterplots, her tangled personal life only becomes more demanding, more wrenching, and more erotically fraught.
